December 5, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Dec. 5, 1931

* Very 1st newspaper review ?
* Frankenstein the movie - 2nd day
* Boris Karloff - monster
* Colin Clive - Dr. Frankenstein

Page 21 has a very significant & historic review for the movie "Frankenstein". Under "The Screen" is a two column heading: "A Man-Made Monster in Grand Guignol Film Story" which is a review of this famous movie on it's opening day the previous afternoon. Also on the same page is a very small advertisement for the movie on it's 2nd day. A rare opportunity to have a original piece of history from this classic movie before most of the public first viewed it.
News, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 38 pages, rag edition in nice condition.

wikipedia notes: The film opened in New York City at the Mayfair Theatre on December 4, 1931, and grossed $53,000 in one week.
